I am a yoga-loving American woman, having practiced for over a decade, but still don't know much about Ayurveda. If you're like me, Ayurveda curious, then enjoy this new podcast with my old friend, Jeevani Eigen.
Jeevani will give us some context, taking the elements and how they influence Ayurvedic theory. Then we'll dive into one theory within Ayurveda, the tri-doshic theory.
The three doshas are: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. When there are imbalances in these subtle energies, it can signal a pre-curser to disease. For show notes, including a description of the 3 doshas and Jeevani's resources, please follow this link to our blog.

Cindy Haas was a Dental Hygienist for many years before also becoming a Certified Holistic Health Coach.
She published a book called Over the Lips and through the Gums to teach others about the mouth and how our choices effect our oral health. She also educates dental professionals who want to incorporate more holistic methods into their practices at Integrative Dental Concepts.
Cindy was nice enough to answer my myriad of questions about oral hygiene. It's a long episode, but I encourage you to listen through to the end when we give some practical tips.
Here are some things you'll learn on the show:
What is the bacterial environment in the mouth?
How do teeth get nutrients versus get decayed?
What are the most important foods to eat or avoid for oral health?
Are brushing and flossing getting the job done?
What about these dental options: fluoride, xylitol, MI paste, oil pulling and water pics?
How can we help our babies develop a healthy mouth?
This is really exciting and important information that is sadly still hard to find. I hope you enjoy the show and share it with a friend who needs it!

I had a great conversation on the podcast with Dr. Jolene Brighten, ND about thyroid conditions, and how they effect our fertility, our baby's health and our own post-partum health.
I would say that we speak the most on the subject of post-partum, as it's a subject close to my own heart, as well as Jolene's, who discovered well past childbirth that she had post-partum autoimmune thyroiditis.
One thing I think is important to understand deeply is that our reproductive stages are linked, and minding this continuum is critical to our health as we try to conceive, carry a child, and then support a new baby.
Dr. Brighten talks about:
Why and which thyroid markers to test pre-conception
How an untreated thyroid condition can lead to miscarriage and developmental deficits
Why it's important to test thyroid markers in weeks 6-12 of pregnancy if you are autoimmune thyroid
Why changes in our immune system potentiate thyroid imbalance after childbirth
Which underlaying factors to consider of you have autoimmune thyroid
Why getting support is needed for post-partum health complaints
If you are an autoimmune mom, a mom suffering with post-partum symptoms, a woman diagnosed with autoimmune thyroiditis, or someone curious about thyroid disorders (which are highly on the rise in women,) I think you'll benefit from the info-packed interview with Dr. Brighten.
